validation of morsi on november november 21st, including "new york times" article which praise the president as an engineer who solves problems quoting president obama. to what extent if any was this at least interpreted by morsi as a green light of international approval for whatever you might decide to do domestically and what lessons should we draw from that experience?

bankrupt in new york history. 20 years ago it had automobiles and music. it seemed like the center of the universe. the fear is that the state review will show the city is broke. the way the city can avoid filing bankruptcy is to come to terms with their unions and creditors with their pensions and healthcare and other obligations. detroit is over $2 billion in debt and experts say it's unlikely they are going to come to terms. it also does not look like the president or the big banks will come to the rescue. chapter 9 is very expensive and it's a last ditch effort because it will lead to money going out the door and also to a lot of chaos. it's legally giving detroit about six months to get its books in order, to get its financial house in order. but if this review shows the city is in fact very cash strapped, well then it could speed up the entire bankruptcy process and we know for a fact that cash flow in the city of detroit is down to a trickle. alisyn: they have been in trouble for some time. thanks for the update. there is new hope for people suffering from alzheimer's diseas
